“They are definitely going strong,” a source told E! News.

Although they work together they do not have any romantic involvement with each other on screen. Byers plays Andre Lyon and Gealey plays Anika Calhoun who is engaged to Andre’s father Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard). That’s right, she’s his step-mother on the show.

“There’s something about the realness of Anika,” Byers told Essence Live when asked about Gealey’s character. “She’s been in a relationship with this man for five years. She’s the head of A&R because she’s smart and educated and really worked her way up. Some of the circumstances she’s going through seem to really hit hard in my core in regard to what relationships should be and how they fell apart.”

Season 2 of Empire is doing well with audiences and will be featuring guest appearances by Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock and Kelly Rowland.

The next episode of Empire airs on Oct. 7 at 9 pm on FOX.
